15 Famous George Washington Quotes

george-washington-harder-conflict-greater-triumph

George Washington was the first president of the United States, a leader and a strategist, the only man unanimously elected by the Electoral College, serving two terms as president.

As the first president, Washington knew that all his methods, decisions and moves will create a precedent for everything that will follow, so he always made his choices carefully and responsibly. He established authority by remaining honest and by not abusing the power he had.


Washington refused to serve a third term, and chose to live his last years as a simple gentleman farmer, setting a great example once again. Washington was a man with a deep sense of duty, a military hero and a patriot.
